Abstract
This research was funded by grants from the International Migration Program of the Social Science Research
Council and the Ford Foundation Dissertation Year Fellowship. The Program on African Studies, the Center for
International and Comparative Studies and the Dissertation Year Grants Committee at Northwestern University
provided financial assistance. This paper has benefited greatly from discussions with Joseph Altonji, Sara Berry,
Joseph Ferrie, Jane Guyer, Leslie Kersey, Ifeanyi Osili, Peter Rangazas, Anna Paulson, Steve Russell, Thomas
Wiseman, and Christopher Udry. I am grateful to Edith Nkwonta, Rina Okonkwo, Paul Okonkwo, and Uzochi
Ukwu for their research assistance during my fieldwork in Nigeria.
